Karkala, Oct 21: A leopard which had fallen into a well while chasing a dog was rescued and sent back to the forest by the forest department staff with the help on locals on Friday October 20 morning.
The leopard had fallen into the well of one Venkappa Moolya of Ninjur on Thursday October 19 night. But it was only on Friday morning that it was known to the people. They immediately informed the forest department. However, it was quite difficult to take out the leopard from the well which was 25 feet in depth.
Though they made all the arrangements for this, the presence of hundreds of people who had come to see the leopard made it quite impossible. Finally a basket was lowered into the well with the help of a rope. Once the leopard got into the basket, it was pulled up. Soon the leopard came out of the well and vanished into the deep forest area.
